Default Could there be a chance of reverse your diabetes

Any believers on reversing our diabetes situation. Can it be possible? A friend of mines told me they saw it in a book sounds really convincing, there nothing wrong in hoping

Very sorry to have to tell you this, but -- no. Not at this time.

With good control, existing complications can often be reversed or, at least, be kept from getting worse. Additionally, the need for insulin or other meds can often (not always) be reduced or eliminated. But the underlying diabetic condition -- and the need to monitor, manage and control, remains.

Those books and programs make lots of money, though!

Of course! However, it is most unfortunate that there's always somebody ready to prey upon the hopeful.

The Good News is, there can be life -- a good, lively, long one -- with diabetes! The only catch is, it does take continual effort.

Health care costs can be obscene.

Maybe our members can help you figure something out. You might want to start a new thread on the cost of meds, so you can get more answers.

Folks will need to know:

-- What med(s) you're on now
-- Whether you have insurance (no need to get too specific)
-- Where you live (again, no need to get too specific)

Hope we can help!

But there IS something wrong with trusting the ones who would willingly trade on your hope, the ones who would strip you of your money without a care in the world. It is said that talk is cheap, but when these scoundrels talk you out of your money and by the time you realize they aren't to be trusted, you've already ruined your health chasing their make-believe rainbow, then there's something GREATLY wrong with that. If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.
